Overview

As always, this white is sourced from the Fire Gully vineyard, just down Metricup Road not far from Pierro by road, and even shorter distance across country. The Chardonnay blocks were planted originally in 1988. The grapes are hand picked, chilled overnight in the winery cool room and then sorted by hand and pressed the next morning at low temperatures so that the wines show less phenolics, greater finesse and more elegance that was previously possible. The juice is then fermented and matured in French barriques to provide structure, complexity and mouth-feel.

Expert Reviews

Produced by the family and team behind Pierro wines in Margaret River. This comes from a vineyard planted in 1988 in Metricup. It’s quite a lean, racy, yet flavoursome expression.

Bright, shiny scents of citrus, apple, floral things, sniff of cedar and grilled nuts, but mostly about freshness. Crisp and tangy to taste, appley and fresh, touch of slate-like mineral connection, then a finish that’s mouthwatering and lightly chalky. Vibrant, easy to like, fruity-driven but not sweet, refreshing and with some fine detail, if you like that sort of thing in chardonnay. Bit of winner. Rating 92 - Drink by 2021, Mike Benniie, winefront.com.au (JAN/2016).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

This wine shows a touch more cedary oak on the nose at the minute. It has delightful freshness and vibrancy in its youth, with pure grapefruit flavours and a hint of nectarine. It is more savoury and hence less sweet than some Margaret River Chardonnays, with a soft mouth feel, pleasing fleshiness in the mid-palate and gentle tangy natural acidity to finish.
